The need to consolidate the ongoing development drive across Edo State has been identified as a major reason continuity of Governor Godwin Obaseki is necessary.
To this end, the Deputy Governor of the state, Mr Philip Shaibu, has been consistent in his issue-based campaign either jointly with his boss or alone telling Edo people that the re-election of Governor Obaseki on September 19 will ensure the sustenance of economic development in the state.
In a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Mr Benjamin Atu, Comrade Shaibu said Obaseki’s re-election would also ensure that the transformation agenda of the present administration would be fully implemented.
“God has ordained Obaseki to lead Edo to the promised land, the governor has the genuine interest of the development of both human and infrastructure at heart, he has been able to fulfill all the promises he made when he was given the mandate to rule the state in 2016”, he said.
The deputy governor also reiterated Obaseki’s commitment to the welfare of the people, saying that he would not change his focus after his re-election.
“Obaseki will make Edo the most developed in the South-South zone and he will do everything within his reach to ensure that more jobs are created in the state as well as economic empowerment for the women, the youth and elderly’ he said.
The deputy governor further emphasised the commitment, sincerity of purpose, institutional dynamism and good administration on the part of the Edo government.
He added that the administration formulated a blue print for the economic development in the state and it would turn things around for the ultimate benefits of the people.
